Today is World Aids Day.
And I'm wearing a red ribbon. Are you?
And it's not because celebrities are doing it.

My mom (who is a social worker) has always encouraged us to support the fight against AIDS. It seemed pretty strange at first - we didn't know anyone who had the disease. She said that it didn't matter. Most of the people who get AIDS are people my age. Most of the people infected are people who live in Asia.

Asian people my age.
That hits too close to home.

AIDS awareness started out as my mom's cause. Now it's mine too.
I don't apologize for sounding like a commercial.
